Cells and tissues of all kinds of living organisms have been found to contain ribonucleic acid (RNA) and protein both as separate constituents and as complexes in the form of ribonucleoprotein particles. From a variety of experimental data it has been inferred that these particles are probably intimately involved in the processes of protein synthesis.
